Bio[]

Archie's Angels is an Australian television series about three female police officers who become private investigators to an unseen employer known as Charlie. They are identified as Sabrina (unidentified), Kelly (Barry Otto) and Jill (Benny Hill); their associate is Bosley (Benny Hill).
In the police academy, the girls learn marksmanship with a gun; Jill careful circling their bullet holes in a sign. Sabrina and Jill practice man-handling criminals with a transient (Ron Shand) standing in for them. While transporting a criminal, Jill is noticed loitering outside a Men's Lavatory waiting for her prisoner (Ron Shand) to emerge.
After graduating, the girls are hired by Charlie to work for him. After the success of one case, he sends them after three counterfeiters known as the Three Graces (Max Phipps(?) and two unknown) named Faith, Hope and Charity. Sabrina will have to go undercover as a Bunny Girl at a club where the Graces frequent, but Jill thinks she would be better for the job. After some back and forth, Charlie gives in, and Jill gets the job. As a Bunny, patrons don't hesitate to stick bills (and even coins) down the top of her outfit. She even manages to out drink the patrons in the club. She eventually meets an informant (Ron Shand) who tries to to give her information, but he gets shot in front of her. One of the Graces gets the drop on her, but he's confronted by Sabrina, who is stopped by another Grace, stopped by Kelly, who is stopped by another Grace. The guys frisk Sabrina and Kelly, but Jill gets upset when she's not searched. Despite the drawback, they find a matchbook to Dell Safari Park where they slip in through the Children's Play Area. The Graces take after them, and get the brief jump on Jill, but the Angels soon overwhelm them. Using a park vehicle, Jill lassos one while another is hit in a delicate spot by a loose piece of fence.
When Charlie calls the girls to thank them for another good job, Jill reveals they have kept the counterfeit cash.
